Alli Owens to start 29th in ARCA 200

After a nail biting qualifying session for Saturday's ARCA 200 at Daytona International Speedway, Alli Owens breathed a sigh of relief. Driving her No. 12 ElectrifyingCareers.com Chevrolet, Owens turned a lap of 178.137 mph, which translates to a 29th starting spot.

"We made it in and that's the most important thing," said Owens. "I've been dreaming of this day for a long time. This is awesome. My phone has been blowing up with so many people calling to congratulate me."

Owens, a rookie in the ARCA RE/MAX, will line up behind her teammate and team owner Mario Gosselin. "The lap was very good," added the 19-year-old. "I'm starting behind Mario so we are going to be doing a lot of drafting together. I have faith in him, my team and the car. I know we are capable of making it to the front."
